I my fiance registered with a new doctor and went for a smear test on Tuesday.
The nurse started the smear but then stopped and called in a doctor.
The doctor told my fiance that she had to go for "an urgent Colposcopy" as there was a "possibility of cancer"
As you can imagine we are more than a little worried!
After two days, the hospital has not called to give a date for the colposcopy and when we called, said that they had not yet received the referral.
My question is regarding the timescales that doctors and hospitals use.
How long should it take to be notified of the Colposcopy procedure after an "urgent referral"?
Is it unusual for the smear procedure to be abandoned and instead given a referral?
I really appreciate any advice.
